I am one of the many who is so scared of dying. But I always thought that immortality will be really tiring and it might be true. My mythology teacher once said that the gods envy the mortals because we get to rest and they can't, and that this jealousy has brought the suffering of the mortals in this world that they get to face all these trials and sufferings. So what do you think? Would you rather be mortal or immortal? As for me, I would just accept how nature is and have finally conceived that I should face the reality of death as it is with nature.

Hi the! I would rather be mortal than immortal because I know the one who has taken birth in this world has to die one day. We should look at the flowers, they bloom for a day or two and then they gradually fade away. Life of a flower is short but sweet. We should live like flowers so others could 'smile' seeing us.

I wouldn't wish to be immortal , if my whole family is not. What's the use of living if they are not around anymore to share my ups and downs. We have a time to live and we have a time to die. So while we live , we should live it to the fullest.

If the one I love is also immortal or will also be immortal, then maybe I will want to be one too. If it takes that to spend an endless lifetime with him and our children, then I think I will accept that. Even if I get tired, I will rather be immortal with him, and not suffer the pain of being apart.

I don't that you will ever feel tired when you always have love for each other to share for eternity. That is, I believe, one main reason why some are afraid to die--because we want to love more and needs to keep feeling it and we don't want it to stop. That is one sad thing there. Let us just hope that the after life offers a lot like these so our spirits will still enjoy what the after life has to offer.
